Proxychains-ng hooks the connect() calls that Nmap is making and makes connections through a proxy instead. For some reason, it is causing all connect() calls to succeed, which Nmap interprets as an open port. This is most likely the behavior of your proxy, but it could be caused by Proxychains-ng itself. It is not a bug in Nmap, and Nmap has no control over this behavior.
